And now Barrel Reserve gins!


Three limited edition Barrel Reserve gins from San Francisco have been launched in the UK. These are made by ageing No.209 Gin in French oak wine barrels from the distillery's sister business, the Rudd Oakville Estate winery in Napa Valley. The three varieties are: Cabernet Sauvignon Barrel Reserve Gin, with chocolate and oak on the finish; Sauvignon Blanc Barrel Reserve Gin, with lavender, rose and chamomile; and Chardonnay Barrel Reserve Gin, with toasted oak and butterscotch. The combination of distilling and wine-making experience makes the No. 209 Barrel Reserve Gins unusual. They retail at £60 and have an ABV of 46%.
